Prep sensation Drew Hunter will make his professional debut at this year's Sir Walter Miler amid a stout field of elite athletes that competed at the U.S. Olympic Trials. 

Races start at 8:20PM (EST) on Friday, August 5. Don't miss out! WATCH LIVE on FloTrack.

Hunter, who signed a 10-year contract with adidas last week that includes a full scholarship to a school of his choice, originally committed to Oregon before deciding to forgo his NCAA eligibility. He solidified his place in history this year by becoming the eighth high school runner to break four minutes in the mile.

Other top contenders in the men's mile include last year's runner-up, Kyle Merber, and other milers who recently competed at the U.S. Olympic Trials: Johnny Gregorek and Colby Alexander, who finished sixth and seventh in Eugene, respectively, as well as Donnie Cowart, Corey Leslie and Craig Forys. They will pace the field in an attempt to break the record-setting 3:57.38 run by Robby Andrews in 2015.  

The women's elite field includes Olympians Morgan Uceny (1500m) and Anna Willard (steeplechase) as well as Amanda Eccleston, Sara Vaughn, Lauren Johnson, Stephanie Brown and Nicole Tully--all of whom are fresh off of Trials races in Eugene, Oregon.
